Description

There has been an issue for dolphin versions on and after dolphin 5.0-16861 on my computer where games would randomly crash either on boot or on quitting. Sometimes it would load but 70% of the time it will just lock up (the application will stop responding). Something that was added in 5.0-16861 is causing this crashing and im not sure what.

History

1) try to make it reproducible.
2) try removing usb devices from your system until it no longer crashes. it sounds like SDL bug, so probably being triggered by some usb device (not necessarily a controller, but may be).

3) post a crash dump

On discord they clarified that this device is causing the crash.

I think for all SDL bugs, process should be: update submodule to latest SDL. If it still happens, file a bug on SDL. Not really a dolphin issue.
